ACNE

Acne is a common skin disorder that requires thoughtful treatment. Contrary to popular belief, acne does not only occur in teenage years, but can impact those in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond. Treating acne can result in elevated self-esteem, reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and permanent scarring, and other skin issues.
